The Ha frame on its own is amazing, which I will upload later.

Lovely Martin as always! Your images always show the benefit of copious amounts of data!
Just beautiful. As good as a glass of red and a bit of quiet on a Sunday night....

Beautiful image, though it's an interesting region with no real standout object.

17 hours Ha under these skies (http://www.martinpughastrophotography.id.a u/Yass_ASC.htm) really does help.

Nice Martin. 29 hours is massive. Hard to do at this time of the year.

Paul - if it puts it into context for you - the first image was taken on 27 May and the last on 7 Jul.
I agree though - the weather has been shocking and I am almost routinely fogged out by midnight.

Wow - that's a pretty picture - I can't even google anything to compare it with.

A beautiful photo Martin.
I love the rich, smooth colours.
Is that where you are shooting from? Uggh!
The color in this image is fantastic. I'm right in the middle of a 20 segment mosaic project of this area and beyond in Ha.

John - I guess it all depends on when you click on that link as the image refreshes every 10 minutes during hours of darkness....so you might get to see a really good view, or a sky full of clouds.
Cant wait to see your mega-mosaic.
Well.. it's a nice view Martin. Here's a look out of my office window in Coona......;)
